The mission of the Westminster Public Schools Title X Program is to develop and maintain district and community partnerships to provide homeless families and unaccompanied youth with educational and social support advocacy. The project works to increase student access to quality academic programs, build family resource frameworks for professional communities and staff, and provide professional development trainings on Title X provisions under the NCLB and legislation under the McKinney Vento-Act of 1987.
